Masters of Science in Economics

Georgetown University’s Department of Economics launched a two-year Masters of Science in Economics Degree Program (MS-ECON) in 2017. MS-ECON is an innovative two-year program, recognized as a STEM degree, emphasizing frontier training in econometrics and quantitative economics.

The Economics Department and the Georgetown Center for Economic Research (GCER) have established a Summer Research Assistant Program for MS-ECON Students.  Under this program, select MS-ECON students can contribute to frontier research carried out by Georgetown faculty members during the summer semester.  As Research Assistants, successful candidates will enhance their qualifications for future employment. They will also expand their capabilities to conduct their own future research.  Job postings and information about the application process will be made available early each spring semester.

My two years at the Master of Science in Economics program at Georgetown University were a life-changing experience. It helped me forge both my academic and practical skills. This experience helped me continue on to pursue a Ph.D.
